 About Our Instructors

Robin Weeks
Founder & PRE-School Lead

IMG_1152.jpg

Robin Weeks was raised here in Wimberley, Texas. Growing up in the Texas Hill Country provided her experiences that helped develop her love of nature and the local environment. She moved to San Marcos to attend Texas State University where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. Years of experience teaching in different school environments have shaped her educational principles and belief in the potential of every child. 

Robin is enthusiastic about integrating two of her passions into one...nature and teaching with modern methods. She feels blessed and is excited to share her passions in hopes to foster a love of nature and love of learning in her students.  

In her free time, you will probably find her in a river, camping or spending time with her family and their dog. She also enjoys spending time with her friends, traveling, and being creative in her home studio. Robin also helps support a family furniture making business, Gary Weeks & Co., run by her husband, Austin Weeks.  Robin is the founder of her own craft/creative business, Spoke Hill

Vera Dyson
KinderGarten LEAD

Vera Dyson settled in Wimberley, Texas to raise her two children over twenty years ago. Prior to that she spent a number of years in Europe practicing regenerative farming and later in Texas she landscaped using native plants.

 

She has nearly two decades of experience teaching children ages 2.5-6. Much of her teaching experience has been as the Lead Guide in a Montessori school. She’s also held several other teaching positions throughout her life and considers herself a lifelong educator and learner. She feels blessed to have had the opportunity to incorporate a nature based curriculum in her classroom.

 

One of the things she finds most joyful about teaching is instilling in the children a sense of awe and wonder about the world. In this way she can support their natural excitement for learning. Vera believes if we guide the children to loving our planet they will naturally want to take care of it. Above all Vera believes in the child; in their capacity to learn social/emotional skills, independence, kindness, as well as, academic skills.

 

Vera has also enjoyed teaching yoga and art to both children and adults. In her spare time you may find her practicing yoga on her back patio, drawing, hiking, or spending time in her garden. Now that her children are grown she is adjusting to the change in her family life by traveling more, writing comedy and creating floral designs.
